The Roller Derby

Can you imagine?  One of the major highlights of our day today - aside from the Skull Cake and red bird seed - is getting our driveway compacted.  Here's a video of the guy running the compactor... I hope you don't fall asleep watching it so that you can see the rest of the photos below!

Thought you might like to see the progress, and the layout of the new tree island, too. 

The widest end is 30 feet; the shortest is 8 feet; the length is about 40 feet on each side.  We just got the forms today for getting the soil testing done, so maybe we can get going on that pretty soon.  The City is selling trees again this weekend, and we're planning to buy at least one because one of our aspens blew over in the wind yesterday.

Also, Phil just discovered that we have some of the center line paint from the airport runway right by our hangar... um, I mean garage!

Almost as much fun as finding an arrowhead in our yard!  :-)

It's been a really, really long winter here.  It doesn't take much to get excited.  Just getting to be outdoors is a real treat!
